We offer end to end digital design services for everyone from small personal blogs to larger business sites. End to end means that we’ll take care of every step in the process of setting up your website from registering your domain name, designing your website, and providing continual support for your site after it’s launched.
Before we start building your website, we’ll need to get your site name registered with an ICANN certified registrar. We’ll make sure that your name is registered correctly and your personal information secured within the registrars domain directory. Contact us directly to discuss why it’s important to keep your registration information private.
The site files we create need to be hosted online by a web hosting company. There are a lot of companies out there that will give you a spectacular deal on web hosting, however not all are created equal, and some are just downright terrible. We’ll refer you to a hosting company to suite your budget and site needs while still providing great features and support. We also provide the option to host your site directly with Edgar Source Code. We recommend this option to any of our clients who want peace of mind knowing that their site is being looked after by the company that built it or would like to setup ongoing site support after going live.
Responsive Web Design
Responsive design is not a passing fad. As we rely more on our smart phones and tablets to browse the net, the importance of scaling your site properly for the screen size it’s being viewed on becomes essential. Designing your website in a responsive manner is standard practice from the moment we start building. You’re going to look good online no matter how your customers and visitors reach you.
The internet is simply the best way to reach new and existing customers anywhere in the world. Leverage the 24/7 power of the internet to sell your widgets and doo-dads. List your t-shirts or music files with access to payment gateways that get you paid quick, stock management and retail reports, and customer account management.
While we do rely on client produced content to fill out your site, we offer copywriting services to anyone that wants to craft a specific and focused message across their entire website. We’ll review and edit your content or write your site copy for you. Either way, we’ll make sure your website has a consistent message written specifically for your site visitors
In addition to the great written content you’re planning on placing online, your site images are going to be just as important. Optimizing your images for the web requires attention to not only their content, but also to file size, resolution, placement, and adherence to your site message. We’ll make sure that your original images are show in the best light possible or we’ll research stock or third party images for you and take care of attribution and editing for you.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
This might be listed as an added value to you but for us, it’s practically a requirement for any website we build. For new sites, the ability to rank high in search engine page searches becomes very important. We’ll optimize your site structure from the beginning to include focused keywords, SEO titles, and Meta descriptions for images, copy writing, and content to score your site higher in the search engines page ranks. We’ll also make sure that your site structure is clear for search engine crawling and build and submit your XML sitemap to major search providers such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
Your typical website designer might say goodbye after the site goes live but at the Source, we say hold up. Keeping an eye on the performance of your site is an important follow up service that helps to ensure your site performs to its potential, remains safe, and keeps up with changes in web technology. It’s standard for us provide additional monitoring for site issues after going live but we’d love to establish an ongoing relationship with our clients so that we can provide yearly site reports and priority support for any issues that may be a detriment to your site. We’ll watch your back while you focus on your core business or personal interests.
